Confession is a great sacrament. We all need it….and we all need it regularly. I go to confession every time I meet with my spiritual director, which is about once a month.

St. Martin de Porres
Born on December 9, 1579, in Lima, Peru, to a Spanish nobleman and former black slave from Panama, Saint Martín de Porres is the patron saint of interracial harmony. His father abandoned them leaving them in deep poverty. In Peru, by law all descendants of African or Indians were not allowed to become full members of religious orders. Martin, who spent long hours in prayer, was accepted in to the Dominicans of Holy Rosary Priory as a volunteer performing the most menial tasks and at 15 was received as a servant boy.
During this time there he worked in the kitchen, did laundry, cleaned barbered and healed. He was granted the privilege of taking the vows as a member of the Third Order of Saint Dominic by the prior Juan de Lorenzana who decided to disregard the law restricting Martin based on race. However, not all members in the priory were as open-minded as Lorenzana.
Martin was called horrible names and mocked for being illegitimate and descending from slases. He became a lay brother in 1603 at the age of 24. Later he was assigned to the infirmary where he remained until his death in 1639. Martin’s life reflected his great love for God and all God’s gifts. He was known for his vegetarian lifestyle, social work and unique healing powers, and for founding a residence in Lima for orphans and abandoned children and slaves. He is the patron saint of people of mixed race, innkeepers, barbers, public health workers and more. Today is his feast day.
Thanksgiving Day Is Coming!
Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and you will soon be saying, “Pass me the mashed potatoes, please.” This November holiday has its roots in American history and has grown into a day where we remember all the things for which we are thankful: country, family, friends, health, etc. Unfortunately, we can find ourselves so caught up with travel plans and buying the perfect turkey or ham that we let the day pass us by, and all we can focus on is how much we ate and who won the day’s football games. That’s why it is time NOW to begin reflecting daily of all things, great and small, that we are thankful for in life.
Gratitude is a key characteristic of a good Everyday Steward, but it does not develop in us without effort. In the coming days, we can contemplate all those things God has given us. If it helps, we can create a written list and bring it with us to the Thanksgiving dinner table. The point is that too often we take so many gifts for granted, and unless we pause and purposely reflect, we miss the chance to give thanks. A healthy and hearty heart filled with gratitude can make the highs in life that much higher and the lows easier to bear. Increased gratitude will also bring us closer to the source of all those good gifts, our God.
So, what will Thanksgiving be like for you this year? You have some time to make it something more than it has been in the past. The choice is yours.
